Earlier this Summer we contacted Lakeshore (one of our favorite stores, EVER) to see if they would be interested in doing a giveaway for the beginning of the new school year; they graciously said yes (eep!).
So, to kick off back to school season, Lakeshore and WeeStructed have teamed up to bring a deserving teacher a bit more fun and fascination to their classroom. Many teachers across the nation are handed small to non-existent budgets for their classes to work with, leaving little to the imagination. Our educators end up spending their own wages on necessary supplies for the classroom and their students. Its an uphill battle, and we as parents, need to help when we can.
For our back to school giveaway, Lakeshore will be providing one awesome educator with the 3 Little Pigs STEM Kit for their classroom and WeeStructed will be giving away a $50 shop credit to spend on any of our Teaching Tiny Humans is Exhausting merchandise. To enter the giveaway, simply follow both WeeStructed and Lakeshore on Instagram. Comment on WeeStructed’s morning post (9AM) and tell us who your favorite educator is and why they’re so special to you and your family. Giveaway will go until Sunday evening (6PM). Winner will be notified on Monday to claim their prizes.
Remember to thank the teachers in your life. After Summer is over and we, as parents, get to breathe a bit easier again while the kids are in school, we realize the impact and the importance of educators. They seriously are the sanity in our children’s lives (and our’s). Hallelujah!
Read below to find out about STEM Kits and the growing benefits of having your kids use them throughout their schooling.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These kits are great for kids as young as 4 and go up to the high school level. I personally love them for home school Fridays. Each pack contains the materials needed for the experiment, teacher cards to explain the lesson plan and reusable step by step instruction cards for the kids. I originally bought this pack for my littlest human (in preschool), but my 3rd grader joined in as well.
I love that these kits are all based on trial and error until the student comes up with a solution. I’ve talked to many of the teachers at the charter school my kids attend, and they agree. Kids need flexibility and reasons to experiment. Everyone comes to the solution from a different path. It’s a great resource and product to have on hand!
